He’s still a strong scorer and the Knicks don’t have enough of those. But he’s not the type of player, or personality, to foster development in younger teammates – nor does he fit coach David Fizdale’s idea of pace, space and ball movement. The ball sticks to Beasley and he prefers the mid-range game to beyond the 3-point line. As one scout described the forward, “A good player on a bad team.” Nonetheless, Beasley will be looking for a payday after a series of minimum contracts in the NBA. But giving Beasley security with a contract is a gamble since he tends to lose focus. He is a favorite of Knicks executive Craig Robinson.
